Analogue Systems - Can have multiple cameras to monitor and record all aspects of your home, both internally and externally. Analogue systems can be configured to provide constant recording of video or take still frames and send them to an on-site DVR (digital video recorder) for storage and viewing. The DVR will have an option to copy stored data to an external device, like a USB flash drive, or may have an inbuilt DVD or CD recorder to permit images and video to be handed to the authorities as criminal evidence. The web connection is optional, as these CCTV setups are designed to function as a standalone system.

Security needs to be set-up perfectly to avoid other people from viewing your images and videos.

Both analogue and IP systems are able to use cloud based technology together with their standard recording capabilities.

Contemporary CCTV cameras will often come with integrated infrared lights for operation in dark conditions. The images recorded by an infrared camera could be of a slightly lower resolution than those taken in normal daytime light and they'll also always be in black and white due to the characteristics of low light recording. It is possible, if you think your resolution at night does not meet your expectations, to set up specialist security lamps that produce a more natural light source for your CCTV cameras. These offer you the most effective chance of recording colours under artificial light conditions, and can also be set to only come on if your camera detects movement.

If you're using motion sensor lights with a CCTV system, you have to make sure that the light does not shine brightly on neighbour's property and gardens, or shine directly into any oncoming traffic areas.
